Vintage Treasures

The new May/June Paper Crafts magazine is out, and I just received my copy in the mail.  This is a very special issue for me as I am a cover girl!  My card is the mom card, I was so happy to receive the email saying that I made the cover!


My card went with this photo block that I made with some attic treasures.  The wooden block was from my dad's shop, the photo is of my mom's great grandma and grandpa, I scanned an old photo developing envelope and used it along with some vintage lace.  Of course my Xyron made it so easy, just ran the papers through and adhered to my painted block. I had a blast making this project!
